Colangelo said a few weeks ago tat he was currently 248lbs. I do wonder what his ideal playing weight will end up being. i.e. Will he capitaize more on running and crashing or bruising?

For example, I can understand why Bosh is trying to put on a couple of pounds to play centre this year. (not saying Jo-V = Bosh) It may be partially with an eye on the Lakers because I do remember Bosh dropping 30 and 40 on Dwight a few times against Orlando.

(yes, I know he's still young and going to grow, but he looks more like a Bosh than a Bynum)

I've always pictured him being a mobile C. He may have the body of a PF (for now,) but he has a C's game. He may never have the bulk to match howard or bynum but that doesn't mean he can't be a great player. He can still be a good defender and rebounder and his mobility will be a huge plus on D and O.

Even Dwight was pretty thin for a C when he entered the league. Yeah, I think Dwight was a bit younger than Jova as a rookie, but Jova also doesn't need to obtain Dwight's current physique. Point is, most Cs do some substantial physical maturing/weight gain after a couple of years with NBA trainers hounding/guiding them.

You can promise a billion for that pic, they never played on the same court so you could keep the billion

Dwight Howard rookie summer league
In the video D12 looks better built (bigger arms) than JV looks at this moment, being one year older than Dwight was :/ But they do play very similar !!!

Well I meant in the future, once they start practising together and eventually game action.

I don't think Val will ever match the size of Bynum or Dwight, but I don't think he needs to. I think he'll have a Tyson Chandler-like body type. And that's fine.

It would be great if JonasV could turn out to be Noah but with much better offense.
